EU says Iran nuclear talks were "a good start"
BRUSSELS, July 7 (Reuters) The European Union said talks late yesterday with Iran on a package of incentives to end a nuclear standoff were constructive and laid the basis for a fuller response by Iran at a second meeting due next week.
''It's a good start for what we expect will be a positive meeting on July 11,'' a spokeswoman for EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said of his two-hour meeting with Iran chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani.
''We expect on Tuesday that they will be able to give us a substantial response,'' she said of a long-awaited reply to a package of technology, trade and other incentives for Iran to halt uranium enrichment.
